2002 Subaru Impreza turbo WRX. Limited edition bug-eye headlights.
Extremely reliable. Great in any weather conditions, including blizzards. 4 wheel drive ability got me safely home during a “snow cane” last year and it easily makes it up my long, steep driveway which becomes a sheet of ice in the winter. It is extremely comfortable with racing seats. It gets awesome gas mileage, about 25 mpg. The brakes and gas are both very sensitive, making it easier and safer to drive. I love the precision steering. The entire car is extremely roomy, fitting up to 5 people as well as all of my bags and purses and my boyfriend’s large amount of tools. The trunk provides room for pretty much anything and everything- I even fit a queen size mattress in it once. Overall, it is an extraordinarily safe, reliable, comfortable, and economically great car, and still runs like a dream despite being upwards of 10 years old.
